Bush student sings on x factor

While most middle school students spend their summer playing video games, going to the beach, and enjoying time away from school, Bush Middle School eighth grader Reed Deming found himself hanging out with Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and hundreds of aspiring young musical super stars.

Reed and his family traveled to Austin to compete in the first round auditions for The X-Factor television show. During his first audition, Reed didn't skip a beat when unexpectedly he was asked by Simon Cowell to sing another song. He did so and wowed the judges which ultimately led to a trip to Miami and several more rounds of elimination boot camp.

With the competition whittled down to the top 24 contestants, Reed and five other aspiring young performers were placed with Britany Spears as their mentor and judge. Reed performed for her and guest judge Will. I. Am. at her home in Malibu, but unfortunately was not selected to advance to the final sixteen contestant group.

What an awesome experience for Reed and his family! We are very proud of Reed's accomplishments both academically and in the music field. He continues to spend his free time writing songs, creating music videos and performing. You can see all of Reed's X-Factor and performances on YouTube.
